weber smokey mountain and maverick et 732

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if anyone has found a good mod for running the thermometer probe somewhere other than the door or top vent?  It's a pain running it through the vent because then when you take the top off the probe gets pulled off the grate.  I saw you could buy a kit to switch out one of the screws but the et 732 probe is too big.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Own an angle grinder?  Here you go.  I have one of the newer WSMs with the grommet in the side but I'd have no problem notching my barrel if it didn't have one.

Thanks guys! It makes me a little nervous because I think it will void the warranty on the smoker but it seems like a great mod.  I actually do have angle grinder too.

 

@Noboundaries The new WSM have a grommet already built in for the probe?

Yes. The new WSMs have about a 1" hole in the barrel midway between the grates. A silicone grommet with a hole for a probe and a slit for lead wires fits in the hole.

Look just below my name and there is a link to the eyelet mod I came up with years ago.

Thanks these both seem like good options. When I bought the WSM I didn't plan on making any mods ($400 you wouldn't think you'd have to) but after using it for a season it seems necessary.
